 Cohan wrote this as part of his 1905 musical “Little Johnny Jones”; one of the first true
musicals on Broadway. This musical also yielded “Give My Regards To Broadway” & “You’re A

Yankee Doodle came to London just to ride the ponies.

I am a Yankee Doodle Boy!

I'm the kid that's all the candy, I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy.
I'm glad I am, So's Uncle Sam.
I'm a real live Yankee Doodle, made my name and fame and boodle
Just like Mister Doodle did, by riding on a pony.
I love to listen to the Dixie strain,
I long to see the girl I left behind me.
That ain't a josh, she's a Yankee, by gosh!
Oh, say can you see anything about a Yankee that's a phony?

CHORUS:

Father's name was Hezikiah,
Mother's name was Ann Maria [pronounced “Muh-rye-uh”].
Yanks through and through - Red, White and Blue
Father was so Yankee-hearted that when the Spanish war was started,
He slipped on a uniform and hopped upon a pony.
My mother's mother was a Yankee true,
My father's father was a Yankee too:
That's going some for the Yankees, by gum.
Oh, say can you see anything about my pedigree that's phony?
